Eating food late at night increases blood sugar level and increases the risk of a person gaining weight. Recent research has found that eating food just before bed at night does not allow the body to properly process nutrients and glucose. Because of this, people eating food at 10 pm burn up to 10% fewer calories than those who eat at 7 pm.

John Hopkins University conducted this research on 20 healthy participants. “One hour before bedtime, blood sugar levels were found to be 18 percent higher than those eating fast, and the calories burned during sleep also declined by ten percent,” said lead researcher Doctor Chenjuan Gu. Earlier researches have also found that eating food late at night has negative effects on health.
